My district the 6th Worcester represents the towns of Dudley, Southbridge and parts of Charlton and Spencer. This is my seventh year in the House of Representative and during that time I have worked closely with The Arc’s Center of Hope Foundation. I am proud of the relationship I have with the Center and have been able to respond to them on legislative matters. The challenges faced by families when one of their members has an intellectual or developmental disability can be overwhelming. Center staff has made me feel welcomed and allowed me the opportunity to better serve the needs of my district.
